First, sorry for not posting a weekly update blog last week. I was finishing up a semester and the kids were also off school at the end of the week. So needless to say, it was busy, but also fun times with them. We colored eggs and had an egg hunt (the older kids hid eggs). We had a lovely dinner and watched the movie Hop.
All around, good times.
I cannot give a fair and accurate weight update for myself this week, or at least right now (maybe Friday). Easter ham and the salt = water weight. TOM = water weight. They went one right after the other, so I'm giving my body until Friday to tell me where I'm at. I'm just keeping myself on track right now and drinking plenty of water.
Smoked my last cigarette on Sunday night. Made it through day one feeling pretty good. I was having a lot of cravings for foods, which I found odd. I thought I might be hungry more, but not exactly crave certain things. Then TOM hit in the evening and I realized it wasn't related to my smoking at all. Phew!!
I was a little edgy this morning, but now that I've had the new patch on for about a half hour, I'm feeling better.
I started 2 new classes yesterday and that is keeping me pretty busy, so that's a plus. I can use all the distractions I can get right now.
OK, enough rambling for now. I'm going to leave with pictures from Easter. The kids all woke up at different times, which worked out pretty nicely. We were able to watch each one look through their stuff. Notice Preston checking out everyone's baskets though...LOL!
Friday...coloring Easter eggs!
Sunday morning...Preston was the first one up, as always! 7:30 AM
Next came Chad...who hates having his picture taken! 8:30 AM
Last was Emily...who loves having her picture taken! 10 AM
One last thing I wanted to share. Emily is in her 3rd year of German, which she just LOVES. Each holiday they have to make a poster and display it somewhere in the house. Then I sign it and she takes it back to school. Here is her poster for Easter, which she even let Preston help her on! Ginnie - I know you'll appreciate this!
Translation - Happy Easter
